Thanks   will  update the list ASAP

Noted, yes I think we were going to provide a list of incompatible devices also.   Will get right on that too

Wireless NIC Chip = Broadcom Corporation BCM43228
USB ID =
PCI ID = 14e4:4359
OEM & Model as tested = Dell Latitude E6220/Dell Wireless 1530 Half-size Mini PCIe Card
HW rev = n/a
Interface = PCI
WLAN standard [802.11] = 802.11a/b/g/n
Frequency Band = 2.4 & 5GHz
Security (1) = WPA2
Tested with kernel = 3.0.21-core/3.0.21-corepure64
Tested with Wifi.tcz = N
Required Extensions (2) = wpa_supplicant, wl-modules-KERNEL blacklist=ssb blacklist=bcma blacklist=b43

Notes

Will not work with b43, latest news is "not tested"

dmesg:
wl: Unknown symbol lib80211_get_crypto_ops (err 0)
lib80211: common routines for IEEE802.11 drivers
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
wl 0000:02:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
wl 0000:02:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'TKIP'
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'WEP'
lib80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'CCMP'
eth1: Broadcom BCM4359 802.11 Hybrid Wireless Controller 5.100.82.11

Will not work with ndiswrapper-modules-3.0.21-tinycore, the windows driver requires a more recent version of ndis than that supplied by ndiswrapper

I am not sure if 802.11a or n or dual simultaneous n is supported - in any case, my wireless ap does not support 802.11a or dual simultaneous n

The connection will not start at the first attempt, I'm obliged to do this:
Code: [Select]
udhcpc (v1.20.2) started
Sending discover...
Sending discover...
Sending discover...
No lease, forking to background
$ ps aux | grep udhc
 3268 root     udhcpc -b -i eth1 -x hostname boxdell -p /var/run/udhcpc.eth1.pid
$ sudo kill 3268
$ sudo udhcpc -b -i eth1 -x hostname boxdell -p /var/run/udhcpc.eth1.pid
udhcpc (v1.20.2) started
Sending discover...

adding dns 213.42.20.20
adding dns 195.229.241.222
..this is apparently a bug in the wl driver when used in "wext" mode

Hi,

I am a wireless novice being spoilt with ethernet so first had to stop wired

Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r 8139too

as I appear to have the same chipset as wiki entry 2, I first tried to connect without all of packages dmesg link
http://ompldr.org/vaTFxMQ/dmesg.txt

Feel free to let me know if I have done anything wrong, in future I plan to do this
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i wl-rtl8712u-3.0.21-tinycore firmware wifi
sudo modprobe -r 8139too
sudo ifconfig eth0 down
sudo wifi.sh

I may change that on reboot, anyhow

Wireless NIC Chip = Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8191SU
USB ID = 0bda:8172
PCI ID =
OEM & Model as tested = no name, "Wireless USB Adaptor"
HW rev =
Interface = USB 2.0
WLAN standard [802.11] = 802.11 b/g/n
Frequency Band = 2.4GHz
Security (1) = 64or 128 WEP/ WPA/ WPA-PSK/ WPA2 / WPA2-PSK, TKIP/AE5
Tested with kernel = 3.0.21-tinycore
Tested with Wifi.tcz = Y
Required Extensions (2) = wl-rtl8712u-3.0.21-tinycore firmware wifi
Notes = No WPS button and not yet able to connect to wireless printer

will edit when I can figure out how to connect to wireless printer.

It cost about $12 with free postage and the other reason was the image said Linux --- from a well known auction site

Update:

Tested with Wifi.tcz = Y
Required Extensions (2) = wpa_supplicant, wl-modules-KERNEL blacklist=ssb blacklist=bcma blacklist=b43

Notes

Will not work with b43, latest news is "not tested", does work (32bit and 64bit) with the latest ndiswrapper (1.58) and the windows xp drivers from the dell support site

Have you tried the driver for this device r8192u_usb  ?   wl-rtl8712u driver is for a different adapter

Wireless NIC Chip = Broadcom BCM4313
USB ID = n/a
PCI ID : 14e4:4727 I think (I am not sure what PCI ID is, here is the full line from lspci -nn just in case I messed up: 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)
OEM & Model as tested = The one in a lenovo g580
HW rev = 01
Interface = mini pcie
WLAN standard [802.11] = n (didn't test anything else)
Frequency Band = 2.4GHz
Security (1) = only tested wpa2 personal
Tested with kernel = 3.0.21-tinycore
Tested with Wifi.tcz =y
Required Extensions (2) = I did it with coreplus and blacklisted ssb, bcm43legacy, and bcm.  I didn't have to do anything other than blacklist those, after that it ran out of the box!

Is this thread still in use to update the wiki?

If I messed something up let me know, I'll give you more info.

Thanks, but without the information requested at the beginning of this thread, that's not much use  :)
